Meet the Groomers

Darcy McGuire, Dog Groomer – Lakewood Ranch

Darcy started with Bayside Pet Resort in July of 2015 and has worked at all three locations. She now calls Lakewood Ranch her home base.

While Darcy has been working with animals since high school as a dog walker, she got her start in grooming while she was in college. She worked at a kennel and started filling in to help with small groom tasks until she officially apprenticed for a year. Darcy considered nursing or fine arts as a college major, but dog grooming checked all the boxes for her. She loves the artistry of grooming and favors Bichons and curly type coats including terriers. 

Her favorite thing about working at Bayside is the clients. In all her years of grooming, she says we have the best clients here. 

At home Darcy has a Greyhound named Marty, a Golden Retriever named Roi, an Australian Cattle Dog named Archer, a Terrier Mix named Rudy, a Mini Poodle named Puff and three cats named Tiny Rick, Garbage and Bart. 

In Darcy’s free time she loves to travel to beautiful places to scuba dive and relaxing venues for yoga retreats. She also loves to paint anything and everything.
